The Highway Goes on Forever
Another educational film about highway building. This one goes into quite a bit of detail about the process, and it impresses you with the skill and the risk-taking of the construction workers. But it basically just goes on and on about highway building, which is interesting if youre into that kind of thing, but boring if youre not.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.

The Road most traveled.
Made for (I think) young folk (or stupid folk) Builders of The Borad Highway show us how men make the raods that we travel on. It also gets ditracted an tells us how to lay pipe, how we blast and how lamp posts are put in. Most of the action is sped up as we all know that normal road work is as boring as, well, watching paint dry.
